  1. I love you Grandpa, you were not only a grandfather but a father as well. You and Grandma made me the person I am today. I will miss you. Thanks for everything you’ve done. You will never be forgotten.

  2. I remember Mr. Davison sitting in his recliner, patiently allowing all the neighborhood kids to run in front of his TV shows as we ran in and out playing with the kids. He was always smiling. His boys were lucky to have such a great father. Warmest regards to the family. Brenda Morris

  3. To all the Davidson Family: So sorry to hear about Cecil’s passing. I have great memories of him when we were growing up. He always called me Bonnie and I called him Clyde. My prayers are with all of you. Love Melanie
